    I have received a 2.42 gpa this semester and a 3.09 gpa last semester. I will be receiving a conditional when I return in the fall for having to drop a class and falling below full time enrollment, but will I receive another one for receiving below a 2.5 gpa? Does this mean I will be disenrolled from AFROTC? I am a contracted cadet if that makes any difference.

    Not sure anyone on this forum can give you a definite yes or no. Some things appear black and white from a regulations perspective, but ultimately the decision will lie with your command. Regardless, face your shortfall like a future officer. Show your potential when the hard times come.

    +1 @rocatlin

    This may be impacted by your "whole person score" again. While your grades have fallen short, if your PT numbers and your ECs are high, plus you show leadership in your squadron activities, you may be given more leniency.

    Good luck.

    I am fairly certain I have made at least a decent impression of myself over my 100 semester, but I guess I asked it wrong... my question was whether or not I would be put up for investigation for disenrollment not the outcome of the investigation as I know that is totally done on a case by case basis.

    Is just one semester below a 2.5, or your entire college career to this point?

    If you know it is "totally done on case by case basis" no one on this forum could know the answer you are looking for.

    You can't change your GPA or the fact that you dropped a class. What you can do is own up to your performance with your command and present them with a plan for how you are going to turn things around. Ask yourself why your GPA has dropped and what you could have done to avoid dropping a class. Demonstrate your leadership skills by assessing the situation and developing an appropriate plan of action. If they are able to retain you, make sure you put 100% effort into executing your plan. Good luck.

    So this is my first semester falling below 2.5, I am only a freshman... I have called my cadre and unfortunately my captain will not be returning until next week so I guess I will just have to hold on tight and wait. Does anyone have the link to the LATEST afrotc doctrine that states the regulation on this? I have tried to search it but all I can find are the ones from either 2 years ago or from like 1990

    So each incident is a CE of its own and yes, the contracted part does make a difference. The policy changed this semester in that there are two different categories of CEs which are called "Academic" and "Enrollment" CEs. A cadet can have up to 5 Academic CEs and 2 Enrollment CEs. For example, these are the CEs that could potentially be relevant in your situation:

    A=Academic
    E=Enrollment

    A1. Failing to have a 2.5 GPA (For contracted cadets)(2.0 GPA for noncontracted)
    A2. Receiving a "F" in a course
    A3. Less than full time status
    A3. Any grade that would require a course repeat for degree credit
    E4. Failure to report this within 14 calendar days

    Where did you find this? And also, does this mean I will not be investigated for disenrollment given that I can have 5 and I have only accumulated 2?

    @Lahey It's a new AFROTC HQ policy that started at the end of March. You wouldn't know unless cadre told you, it wouldn't be published anywhere easily accessible yet.
